Angular frequency is the number of radians of the oscillation that are completed each second. A full 360 degrees is 2pi radians, and that represents one complete oscillation: from the middle, to a.

An LC circuit, also called a resonant circuit, tank circuit, or tuned circuit, is an electric circuit consisting of an inductor, represented by the letter L, and a capacitor, represented by the letter C, connected together.The circuit can act as an electrical resonator, an electrical analogue of a tuning fork, storing energy oscillating at the circuit's resonant frequency.

Forced Oscillation-When a system oscillates with the help of an external periodic force, other than its own natural angular frequency, its oscillations are called forced or driven oscillations. The differential equation of forced damped harmonic oscillator is given by. where is the angular frequency of the external force. The displacement of.

In order to obtain an explicit solution to these equations, we can multiply equation 19 by the imaginary unit, and add it to equation 18, giving (20) where and is the natural angular frequency of the oscillations, i.e. the frequency of simple harmonic oscillations in the absence of the Coriolis force.

Revision Notes on Oscillations. Types of Motion:-(a) Periodic motion:- When a body or a moving particle repeats its motion along a definite path after regular intervals of time, its motion is said to be Periodic Motion and interval of time is called time or harmonic motion period (T). The path of periodic motion may be linear, circular.

Finally, combining the last equation together with equations and it is possible to write, where the angular frequency corresponds to the frequency of the undamped motion for small amplitudes ( 15 ). In the following section we will generalize the last equations and we will study some numerical solutions.
